I write about stuff and some of it is even good!

When women write fanfiction, it’s dismissed as “not real writing”. When men write fanfiction, it’s called “The Star Wars Expanded Universe.”

No fandom is perfect, but I think most everyone is handling it respectively. At least from what I’ve seen :)

I think the responses have been respectful; I don’t think the OP is taking it well? Or even really listening.

Clearly I am terrible at fandom-ing. What happened?

There’s a dustup regarding #BisexualRosaDiaz. It looks like one person is saying, “What about all of us as fandom?” and the other person is saying, “What about me and my needs?” There’s a communication problem here — and I think it’s in part because one party is 10 years older than the other.

I’m sensing drama brewing in the B99 fandom, uh oh. let’s see if this tiny baby fandom can weather this storm. 

In the mean time: prayer circle anyone?

It’s been really lovely shooting Season 2 as we’ve all become friends now, and the vibe on set is so wonderful and fun. We laugh a lot. We hang out and chat in between scenes, we sometimes will eat lunch together in someone’s dressing room.

How cute is this?! I love the idea of the seven of them eating salads/sammies and flipping through scripts / shooting notes while all sprawled out in, like Terry’s dressing room. That’s just, how cute is that. What a terrific mental image.



Hey stillscape did you ever get a chance to listen to last week’s ep, where we gave you a pretty sweet shout-out? Because we did~ 

—Aarthi, who has been creeping on you and diaphenia hahaha

PS I loooooved your GoT/Veep/B99 crossover high school AU. That was *Amy Santiago voice* pretty dope. 

I did! Since I did not know the podcast existed, I have had no previous contact with either of you, and since apparently I now have some sort of tumblr-sitcom-fandom-wide reputation for being a witch, I found it a bit disconcerting, to be quite honest. Flattering, but disconcerting. 

And thanks for reading the fic!

This is, naturally, entirely diaphenia's fault, the reputation I mean. Dia calls you a witch in her tags from time to time. You're at the least a practitioner of sorcery, to be fair. 

Jokes aside, it’s great to make your acquaintance, and I hope we didn’t blindside you too badly. :)

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
